History of Sydney

The Sydney area was home to Indigenous Australians and it has been estimated that when the first British convict colony was established in 1788, the number of aborigines living in the area ranged from 4000 – 8000 in number. Captain James Cook actually landed at Botany Bay in 1770 and the British Government commissioned Arthur Phillip to establish a convict colony. He arrived with the first fleet in 1788 at Botany Bay and soon after it was declared inhabitable and he moved the settlement north to Sydney Cove at Port Jackson on the 26th of January, 1778. This day is now celebrated as Australia Day, and the city offers great Australia Day celebrations with Darling Harbour ending the day with a bang. The Harbour comes alive with fireworks and a music show that will entertain the whole family whilst you enjoy your holiday or whatever it is you’re doing in Sydney with our cheap car hire Sydney.
